Why You Need A Smart Meter

This blog discusses the benefits for your business by installing smart meters (AMR).

With the ever changing energy market, we know how many different things your business has to juggle. Here at RES, we can help make your life easier when it comes to energy. We recommend that you replace your old meters with Smart Meters, also known as AMR (Automatic Meter Reading). 


There are many benefits related to installing these meters, many of which are related to saving you time and energy. Especially if you are a part of a property management company because there are many meters that need to be read every month or quarter.

There are many benefits of Smart Meters, these include:

  • Saving you time because you don’t need to collect read
  • Safer because you don’t need to get to difficult/dangerous meter locations
  • Accurate meter reads because your supplier has accurate reads and your bills wont be based on estimates
  • Saves you money because you only pay for the exact amount you use

Smart Meter Myths

There are certain myths that are associated with Smart Meters which is why many people are afraid of installing Smart Meters in their businesses.
